Channa punctatus and Channa gachua; to explore the quantitative expression of transferrins, where for the evaluation densitometric analysis of electrophoretically separated serum TF phenotypes was done. Distinct two peaks for heterozygous TF and single peak for homozygous TF was observed in densitographs. There was noticeable incidence of higher densitometric volumes of heterozygous TFs in comparison with the homozygous TFs in both the fish species. Statistically, considering the Percent Coefficient of Variation (%CoV) of the densitometric data, a small range of ~1.17-3.72% was calculated within each TF phenotype in both the populations whereas 17.79 and 24.33% of total divergence was accounted in C. punctatus and C. gachua, respectively. Further, the resulting significant value (p
